Morihei Ueshiba est le fondateur de l’aïkido. En adaptant les techniques de combat ancestrales japonaises, il a contribué, avec Jigorō Kanō et Gichin Funakoshi, à la conservation de ce savoir menacé d’oubli par la modernisation de la société japonaise.

Après avoir contribué à la militarisation des esprits dans les années 1930 en développant l’aïkibudo dans les écoles militaires et divers lieux de pouvoir ,,,, sa quête personnelle ainsi que le traumatisme lié à la défaite japonaise de 1945 l’amenèrent à modifier son approche martiale en « voie de l’harmonie », rejetant toute idée de compétition suivant en cela les paroles de l’empereur Hirohito lors de son allocution en 1945 : « Nous avons résolu d’ouvrir la voie à une ère de paix grandiose pour toutes les générations à venir ». Ainsi, l’aïkido fut le premier art martial à être de nouveau autorisé par les autorités américaines d’occupation dès 1948,.

Citations Morihei Ueshiba

„In the Art of Peace we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: In the Art of Peace we never attack. An attack is proof that one is out of control. Never run away from any kind of challenge, but do not try to suppress or control an opponent unnaturally. Let attackers come any way they like and then blend with them. Never chase after opponents. Redirect each attack and get firmly behind it.

„There are many paths leading to the top of Mount Fuji, but there is only one summit — love.“

„You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all than you encounter.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: The Art of Peace begins with you. Work on yourself and your appointed task in the Art of Peace. Everyone has a spirit that can be refined, a body that can be trained in some manner, a suitable path to follow. You are here to realize your inner divinity and manifest your innate enlightenment. Foster peace in your own life and then apply the Art to all than you encounter. As quoted in Inspire! What Great Leaders Do (2004) by Lance Secretan, p. 45

„When facing the realm of life and death in the form of an enemy's sword, one must be firmly settled in mind and body, and not at all intimidated“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: When facing the realm of life and death in the form of an enemy's sword, one must be firmly settled in mind and body, and not at all intimidated; without providing your opponent the slightest opening, control his mind in a flash and move where you will — straight, diagonally, or in any other appropriate direction. p. 31

„True Budo is to accept the spirit of the universe, keep the peace of the world, correctly produce, protect and cultivate all beings in nature.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: I felt the universe suddenly quake, and that a golden spirit sprang up from the ground, veiled my body, and changed my body into a golden one. At the same time my body became light. I was able to understand the whispering of the birds, and was clearly aware of the mind of God, the creator of the universe. At that moment I was enlightened: the source of Budo is God's love — the spirit of loving protection for all beings … Budo is not the felling of an opponent by force; nor is it a tool to lead the world to destruction with arms. True Budo is to accept the spirit of the universe, keep the peace of the world, correctly produce, protect and cultivate all beings in nature. An account of an experience of transcendent awareness, soon after a contest where, unarmed, he defeated a naval officer armed with a bokken (wooden sword) without harming him; as quoted in Aikido (1985) by Kisshomaru Ueshiba <!-- Hozansha Publications, Tokyo -->

„Vanquish your foes by always keeping yourself in a safe and unassailable position; then no one will suffer any losses.“

—  Morihei Ueshiba
Context: The real Art of Peace is not to sacrifice a single one of your warriors to defeat an enemy. Vanquish your foes by always keeping yourself in a safe and unassailable position; then no one will suffer any losses. The Way of a Warrior, the Art of Politics, is to stop trouble before it starts. It consists in defeating your adversaries spiritually by making them realize the folly of their actions. The Way of a Warrior is to establish harmony.
